Potassium runoff and leaching losses in beef cattle production systems of southern Chile


23 Jan 2007

Project Description

The objective of this project is to establish the amount of K lost by leaching from livestock systems, so that corrections in fertilizer applications can be made into the beef cattle systems managements of southern Chile, increasing K applications as organic and inorganic fertilizers to correct losses. Results of this project will also contribute to understand K cycling in grazing systems of andisols.
